The menu at a bar can look more like a string of random consonants and vowels (Gewürztraminer, anyone?) than a list of legit words.

After struggling to sound out a beer, wine, or spirit, we usually just throw our hands in the air (OK, maybe just metaphorically) and order something familiar. Which is we put together this handy guide to all the booze we’ve been mispronouncing (with help from Merriam-Webster and Oxford English Dictionary). Keep it bookmarked and covertly pull it up next time you’re at your favorite bar.
